Hi All
Can someone direct me to info on how to get back thro' a set IP address (as with a broadband connection).

Welcome , do you want to set up a VPN [ virtual Private Network] to access your home computer ? What OS are you running on both the home computer and the notebook?

Hi
Yes, I have XP pro on both.
I don't want to dial in to my home PC and use PCAnywhere or similar software.
I thought if my small home network was on line (via ADSL) I could log on to it like and internet address and access my home PC.
Thanks
